Thank you everyone for linking up your beautiful projects on the Inspiration Board this week. For some of you my blog may have appeared messed up with parts missing for several days. If you sent me an email or comment about the problem, I truly appreciate it. It appears to only have affected Internet Explorer readers and I’m hoping the problem is fixed. Please let me know if you see anything strange.

For those of you able to link up – thank you, thank you! All the projects were amazing. Here are a few in the spotlight this week.

Hutch108cForever Decorating was busy doing what she does - decorating. A beautiful display of silver, chickens and all types of fall goodies.

Painted-Drop-Cloth-Soap-WrapsI have got to get on the drop cloth train. I’ve seen so many wonderful projects made with drop cloths. Here’s a great way to use up smaller pieces. Painted drop cloth soap wraps by Live Laugh Rowe.  

1-pm074Cute sweater pumpkins by Alderberry Hill. I love white pumpkins and these soft and fuzzy sweater pumpkins would look great in any d├ęcor.

spinach-and-artichoke-dipGame day food by Cookin Food. Truth be told, I could skip the game and the main course – just give me a bowl of this Spinach and Artichoke Dip and I’m one happy camper.

babynamesubwayartI love this baby subway art by It’s Always Autumn. The colors and font choices are so clean and pretty. My son is sixteen. Is it too late to for me to make one of these?

1DIY pillow 1These beautiful pillows by Creek Line House came from very humble beginnings. The trellis print pillow in the middle was originally one of those very, very flat seat cushions. Remove the foam and insert happy plumpness and you have a designer-look pillow.

giftcardpocketSweet and simple gift card pockets by The Life of Jennifer Dawn. Pretty fabrics and pinked edges are so much nicer than store-bought card holders. These would be great for business cards too!

Mini-Snickers-CheesecakeI can’t show these to my husband, unless I want to make them - which I might. Two of his favorite things are cheesecake and Snickers. Mini Snicker Cheesecakes by A Pumpkin and Princess. Oh, yum!

loveprint51Gorgeous embroidery sampler by Home Sweet Homemade. Each heart is a different stitch embroidered on upcycled paper. This is such a unique twist to the classic sampler. Beautiful and lovingly made.

Blueberry-DonutsPretty to look at and yummy to eat. Heart shaped blueberry donuts by Growing Up Gabel. The best part – these are baked donuts so I would not feel guilty eating one {or four}.

C4CCCE98-2A beautiful post by Kathe with an E. A birthday tea party for her late mother. The table is set beautifully with thoughtful treasured items. Truly lovely.
